I am so in love with dark colored stones! I’ve been drooling over some finds on Etsy. Post your dark lovelies!
Some that I love:
I love the low profile on this one:
The video of this salt and pepper galaxy diamond is amazing:

I’m not a diamond girl at all (Debeers inflation bs and all that) except for the imperfect salt and pepper ones, they’re gorgeous!

I agree with PP about not being into diamonds. I love colored stones of any kind. They seem to have so much character and can be chosen to match the wearer so well. My stone is an onyx. I love how the dark surface shines like water in the light.

I’ve admired your ring before. That’s quite lovely! Is it like a bow on the top? I love rings with ribbons or bows!

That looks like the galaxy diamond in the video I posted! I bet it’s incredible when the light hits it. And a ring project, how fun!
Is this for a RHR or an ering? If it’s an ering, check out some of the salt and pepper rings on Etsy for inspiration. I love them in a 3 stone setting,contrasting with white stones especially.
I’d get creative with RHR and do a celestial setting or something to play up the starry sky look that diamond has (just throwing this out there, I realize it may not be your taste at all).

thanks for the ideas! It is for a replacement e ring, i do love the look of the celestial setting as well. i have seen a few smaller soft pinks and grey salt and peppers that i also have my eye on (mine is 5.7mm). So maybe do some side stones as well. I feel like im trying to build the perfect ring but i have so meany ideas hahahaha
My diamond catches the light realy well and does give out some supper pretty flashes. The depth they have is amazing <3

Way too excited right now but I just got preliminary images back for my e-ring! I’m working with an independent jeweler after getting the stone for Christmas—it’s a 2.6 ct black spinel in an oval cut.
I would also suggest that any of you that love the salt and pepper look check out Point No Point and Gem Breakfast. So many pretty, imperfect stones.

I’ve never seen one in real life, do black or salt and pepper diamonds shine as well?

Ivy & Rose has a few pretty ones up under their engagement ring section on their website. Really reasonably priced, too 🙂
